The Old Corn Mill (now a pub-restaurant-night club) is described as 'the old mill' in the charter during the reign of Henry II (1154-1189) granting land for Kirklees Priory. By late 19C it was also used by the Brearley family for cloth-fulling. The Dean family then ran the mill for 70 years, followed by the Fairburns (wire-drawing and card making). There were at one time two wheels, one for corn and one for fulling (later replaced by a turbine).
